2010 Hall of Fame: C.E. Weathery and C.C. Poindexter

October 19, 2010

C.E. Weatherby of Tuscola and C.C. Poindexter of Pisgah, both deceased, were honored as Hall of Fame inductees as the two men ultimately responsible for this great tradition. Weatherby is quoted as saying, “The small towns of Canton and Waynesville, struggling to raise spirits after first a depression and then a World War, pitched themselves into the keenest high school football rivalry witnessed at that time in Western North Carolina.”
Tuscola Athletic Director Todd Barbee accepted Coach Poindexter’s award, and Coach Weatherby’s son, Ed, accepted on his behalf.
